After a natural disaster, the environmental and societal damage is often unmitigated, especially for unprepared economies without the resources to safely and economically re-build. Miyamoto International is a global structural engineering and disaster-risk reduction firm providing resiliency expertise that sustains industries and safeguards communities around the world. They specialize in designing High-Performance Earthquake Engineering solutions that reduce lifecycle costs and produce a positive net impact on a structure's operation, and in turn, the community it serves. Unlike private sector companies, Miyamoto is committed to saving lives and having a lasting impact on the local economies by training local engineers and contractors to build their structures, equipping them with the tools for future preparedness. "Disaster response" has taken on a whole new meaning since COVID, and now Miyamoto has expanded their expertise into the broader ecosystem of resiliency. The engineering profession is so dated, traditional, anti-environmental, etc, and Miyamoto are at the vanguard of evolving this industry into something profoundly valuable for society.
